Google is offering a new way for you to watch videos on YouTube — and a new way for publishers to make money. Starting today you can subscribe to premium channels for $0.99 per month and up.

Paid channels include kids content such as National Geographic Kids and Jim Henson Family TV, and more adult content including UFC fighting, B-movie channel The Asylum, Qello concert performances.

14-day free trials of each channel are available, and most offer ad-free content.
